Sog-shings or "the Life Trees" for the statues
25 November 2016
Two additional statues of Shariputra and Maudgalyayana offered by His Eminence Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche for the temple in the Benchen Centre Grabnik were filled today with mantras, Life Trees and precious relics of Marpa, Milarepa, Gampopa and all the Karmapas from the 1st one to the 16th.
Soon we will start to paint faces and cover the statues with gold. When finished we will request Rinpoche to perform the consecration ceremony.
Pictures of filling and putting together the statues - see in Gallery.
